“[I/He] Dood It”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 5, 2004

    Catch-phrase of Red Skelton’s character Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid. Usually said just before or after some bit of mayhem. Used in such cartoons as Fifth Column Mouse (Freleng, 1943). Used in Skeltonesque situations in Case of the Missing Hare (Jones, 1942) when Bugs, just before pasting Ala Bahma with a pie, says, “If I dood it, I get a whippin -- I dood it!” as well as in The Impatient Patient (McCabe, 1942).
